Not in Hall of Fame News

Tony LaRussa Retires

Just days after winning the World Series, St. Louis Cardinals Manager Tony LaRussa has decided to retire. On three occasions, LaRussa managed teams to World Series victories and was widely praised for his cerebral style of managing. We don;t generally rank managers on our list, but if we did, we know that LaRussa would be very high on our list.
Congratulations go out to the St. Louis Cardinals who ended their dramatic playoff run capturing their 11th World Series. For our purposes, this adds to the already Hall of Fame careers of Albert Pujols and Tony LaRussa, but does this aid others in their Cooperstown quest? How about Lance Berkman? Does this help propel his resume? What about Chris Carpenter? Just our thoughts!
On WWE.com (and by Dr. Clayton in our shoutbox) it was reported that Mil Mascaras will be inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame. We are still working on our revisions, and will actually include Mascaras in it temporarily. We plan to have the new list up soon (we apoligize that is taking so long) but our intention is to make it as fluid as possible. In the meantime congratulations to the first star who competed primarilly in Mexico to get into the WWE Hall of Fame.
This is the random question we ask of..... Donovan McNabb. The Vikings Quarterback may have won his virst game in Minnesota, but that was mostly due to Adrian Peterson. Fact is that thus far as a Viking, he has been one of the worst starters in the NFL, and last year he was replaced in Washington in favor of Rex Grossman. Looking back, there are more questions than answers regarding his last two years in Philadelphia. Three years ago, when asked about the Hall of Fame chances of McNabb, most people would have said "better than average". What do they…

RIP Al Davis

Football Hall of Famer, Al Davis passed away today at the age of 82. Davis may be remembered solely by younger fans as the goofy looking, eccentric indicidual who may have let the game pass him by, but older fans remember Davis as one of the most powerful figures in Football who helped facilitate the AFL-NFL merger. Davis' Raiders were at one time the "cool" team to cheer for, and their renegade image was essentially that of Davis himself. This is the Al Davis that we will remember today, and somewhere he is putting together a team above saying "just…

The WWE List: Under Construction!

The Importance of Batting Titles

Generally, we are a very positive website, but we will take a 180 and trash Jose Reyes for the way he bowed out of fully completing for a Batting Title today. Reyes took himself out of today's game after he successfully bunted on base, making it easier for him to win the Batting Crown, thus making us wonder aloud if he had an incentive in his contract for that, and if so, will he buy a set of balls. Here is are other question. With the increase push on Sabremetrics, will it come soon that is more important to win…
Well gang here it is.... Every Year we debate the nominations for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and we suspect that it will be no different this year as once again it has been very interesting. If there is a pattern, it is definitley that this is the "Year of the Woman", as a plethora of fenmale candidates have been nominated. Let's take a look at them, shall we? #5 The Red Hot Chili Peppers Nominated again, we would not be surprised if they got in. Even if they don't this is just a matter of time and…
Stay tuned gang.... The 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominations are coming out soon. One thing is for sure, we will have plenty to say about it here!

R.E.M. disbands

You could say it is in an end of an era. The Georgia based band, R.E.M. have called it a career after 31 long years. The Hall of Fame band was one of the most important Alternative bands in the 80's, and by that decade's end was one of the most popular ones too. They leave behind a legacy of timeless hits, introspective lyrics and a diverse body of work. We thank them for the music, and it is not the end of the world....in fact we feel fine.
